Our favorite Local Bike Shop

Beyers Naude Road is one of the main roads out towards the North West of Joburg. But if you are an up and coming mountain biker, do yourself a favour and turn “off the trail” and head into the old streetfront shopping area of the suburb of Linden.

Here, you will find another “centre of excellence” called Linden Cycles, surely the best little cycle shop in the whole damn country. Most South African businesses could learn heaps from Janine and her crew in terms of client service. The shop is always bustling with cyclists (a testimony to the quality of their service), but yet they always have time to answer the myriad of dumb questions that this inexperienced mountain biker has as he prepares for the big race.

I can’t thank them enough for their assistance in preparing for this crazy race.
